The subject of scour (and siltation) at coastal structures continues to receive much interest in the consulting and research fields. Coastal structures can be categorised as having four functions, either (1) to provide permanent protection against flooding (e.g. dykes and seawalls), (2) water level control during storm surges (e.g. barriers) or (3) benefits in coastal management such as preventing shoreline erosion (e.g. seawalls, breakwaters, groynes), or (4) for other industrial or economic functions such as harbour breakwaters and jetties, outfalls/intakes, and windfarms. Therefore the topic of scour at coastal structures can be said to cover structures built on the shoreline as well as structures built in tens of metres of water, and waves and currents operate in varying combinations and relative magnitudes.
